Greenworks 20192 8.5-Inch 6.5 Amp Electric Pole Saw Review

Greenworks 20192 is cord powered electric pole saw with 6.5 Amp motor and 8” Oregon bar and chain. Since it was released Greenworks 20192 has gained a significant following so can an electric pole saw be really that good?

Cutting performance

Greenworks 20192 does cut well. Cuts through limbs pretty much without any effort, branches and small trees with diameter of couple inches is no challenge for Greenworks 20192 too. Overall performance is impressive especially considering this is an electric unit.

It uses bar oil quite fast though, mostly due to reservoir being small so you will have to refill it frequently.

Ease of use

Greenworks 20192 is pretty lightweight at just 8.81 lbs (4 kg). Pole is adjustable from 37.4 inches to 98.4 inches (or from 0.95 to 2.5 meters). It’s fairly well balanced except when it’s fully extended when saw side does become a bit too heavy to be considered well balanced but it’s not terrible.

Overall ergonomics of Greenworks 20192 are good making it easy to use.


Greenworks 20192 has some pretty neat features like tool-less chain tightening (which is super easy), automatic oiler and translucent oil tank (however it can be hard to read at times especially in sunny weather).

Greenworks 20192 has 3/8″ (9.5 mm) chain pitch and 0.043″ (1.1 mm) chain gauge.


Greenworks 20192 is a cord powered pole saw and it doesn’t come with one so you will have to purchase it unless you already have one that’s appropriate. It’s very important to use appropriate extension cord otherwise there will be decrease in performance and it can very likely cause damage to motor.

25 feet cord should have gauge rating of no more than 18, 50 feet should be rated at no more than 16 AWG and 100 feet – no more than 14 AWG.

Being cord powered unit it does have some obvious limitations – you won’t be able to use it unless you can plug it in nearby.


Overall Greenworks 20192 is a pretty impressive pole saw. Despite being electric unit it’s plenty powerful and cuts very well. On top of that it’s easy to use and according to consumer reports seem to be pretty reliable too!
